>> live from america's news headquarters, i'm ainsley earhardt. president obama and house speaker john boehner meeting at the white house monday night,ed with the fiscal cliff just two weeks away. reports say the president made a
new proposal to increase the top tax rates on taxpayers earning more than $4,000 and add $200 billion more in 10 years. a spokesman says the president's proposal doesn't include enough spending cuts. senator daniel inoha died monday. he was a medal of honor winnener world war ii and the first japanese american to serve in congress when elected to the house in 1959. hawaii senator daniel inouye was 88 years old. his last words -- aloha. now back to greta. the power to talk. npresident obama clinton will be. and tonight secretary clinton is recovering from a fainting
spell and a conclusion. good evening. any problem with the secretary not testifying? >> well, i think she will have to testify at some point. you know every foreign service officer in every foreign ministry knows the phrase i am about to use. when you don't want to go to a meeting or conference or evint. you have a diplomatic illness and this is wob - on one to beat the ban. it was revealed in a way that was not transparent and i think there is an obligation here especially if secretary clinton decides to run for president. she may be testifying this week, but she will not escape it forever. i don't think she indicated that she will not testify ever it has been reported that she
had the flu and a woman who lived in an airplane for four years reported that she was dehydrated and if you fall and get a conclusion that is it a brain injury. but she did say that she is going to make available the entire copy of the investigations done and completed ambassador pickering and admiral mullen and she department have to turn over the entire summary and that is it a positive step forward. it is it time that the american people fiped out. i don't like that it is done closed doors on wednesday . there is some aspects that are classified and some are not. i can understand why there is two hearings. i tell you the secretary stayed out the public lime light. i think she was waiting for the report so she could find
out what it said. and nothing more embarrassing than to say something and then have it contradicted and have to change the story. she had a chance to read the report and write her testimony at her leisure and i think that is not transparent, either. >> two questions. did she choose ambassador pickering and admiral mulen and that is the first question. are they good aggressive investigators? >> if she picked two that were light weights, i would be sus. but she pick two good ones. >> under secretary for management patrick kennedy picked them. i would like to so the report before judging the personalityings. two events secretary clinton manage tod avoid being in public. two critical points she was
unavailable. first, the famous sunday talk shows in five days after the attack. and ambassador rice wrote in the washington post last week, that secretary clinton was unavailable because she had a grueling week. and the loss of her four colleagues would be grueling. but presidents can have grueling weeks. president roose vet appeared on a member of congress and he had a grueling day. and it departmentin ibcapacitate him and now senator clinton can't testify this week. two points don't make a pattern but make a line. >> i don't understand why the republicans haven't put feet to the fire and issued subpeonas for everyone.
and i wish they would put the feet to the fire and i would have subpeoned erch. that is just me. >> sounds good to me. >> straight ahead, an american marine chained to a bed arrested for carrying a registered gun. registered gun. his parents showed the photoof i always wait until the last minute. can i still ship a gift in time r christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift?
uh... whew. [ male announcer ] break from the holiday stress. ship fedex express by december 22nd for christmas delivery.
>> i saw this picture of your son chained to his be.d is there any doubt in your mind that it's authentic? >> no. >> no. >> is the u.s. government helping you at all? >> well, our lawmakers are... you know, certainly lobbying for... the help. but they -- i don't know that they can make it happen. i think at this point that the administration is going to have to get involved if it's going to
change the situation. >> i actually am appalled that they haven't gotten involved already. they could have. look at what libya did. libya managed to get their mass murderer who killed 270 in panam 103 out of jail and brought him back to libya. your son has not done anything like that. governments all the time are wheeling and dealing to get their people back. since 2008, we have given $1.9 billion to mexico. so our government can do something if they want to. >> absolutely. i mean, i -- with a new administration in mexico, you would think that it would just be a matter of a conversation. >> what did they say to you -- i mean, has anyone from the state department contacted you? >> you know, we have had letters from the state department just saying that they are constantly in touch with the consulate to
ensure his... personal safety. for a while he wasn't getting food. so they are checking on him on a daily basis to be sure he's getting fed and talk to him and find out if there are any harassing things going on. but other than that, they will not help you in any way in your legal case. >> i just find that -- i mean, it is so wrong. i mean, our state department can help you. they can do that. governments do do that. i don't -- i mean, i don't know what to say to you. aren't you outraged that you are not getting the help from the state department? >> we are frustrated, you know, we know that behind the scenes, our attorney's talking to the mexican attorney general. and we know that... congresswoman has been in touch with the mexican officials. but we are very frustrated, yes. >> but fine.
they are all talking. that's great. but they are not getting anywhere. time is up and your son's been there since august. i know there is some discussion whether they measured the barrel wrong on the gun and whether or not it was even illegal. but, you know, governments can do this. we have a lot of influence in mexico. i hope that the state department finally steps up to the plate and helps you, sir. >> thank you. >> thank you so much. >> coming up, seven adults and 20 children gunned down. the president's tribute to the children. that's. no -- that's next. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores.
